Hi, I am a graduate of Polish university. I have a job offer in Poland. Can I apply for TRC in Poland - if I only have a German national D work Visa?

P.S. I have an expired Karta Pobytu from December 2022 - from my old employer in PL.

If you have a job offer in Poland and you are a non-EU citizen, you would need to apply for a relevant residence permit in Poland to legally work and reside there. The specific type of permit you would require depends on your circumstances, such as the nature of your employment, your qualifications, and the duration of your stay.

Regarding your situation, if you have a German national D work visa, it indicates that you have authorization to work in Germany. However, this visa does not automatically grant you the right to work in Poland. You would likely need to apply for a separate residence permit in Poland based on your job offer.

The fact that you previously held a Karta Pobytu (residence permit) in Poland, even if it has expired, may be beneficial in your application process. It demonstrates your previous residence and work history in Poland, which could be taken into consideration by the relevant authorities.

To determine your eligibility and the specific requirements for obtaining a new residence permit in Poland, it is strongly advised to contact the appropriate Polish embassy or consulate in Germany or consult with an immigration lawyer who specializes in Polish immigration law. They will be able to provide you with the most accurate and up-to-date information based on your individual circumstances.

It's important to note that immigration policies and regulations can change over time. For the most accurate and up-to-date information regarding your specific situation, it is recommended to consult with the appropriate authorities or an immigration lawyer.

Yes, that's a fact, he writes something about the consulate in Mumbai. He seems to be from India.

How he survived at a Polish university without knowing a word of Polish remains a mystery to me.
With his second-language English and theirs as well, sounds like high comedyLOL

Which means the advice is appropriate to him. He seems a nice guy; hopefully he will be able to stay in PL.

Many Polish universities and other institutions run courses taught entirely in English, including medical degrees and MBAs.

I can well believe it. Native English-speaking instructors/professors?
Dumb question I suppose:-)

No. They would be far too expensive.

There's little point learning Polish if someone's there for, say, a year and is spending that time studying for an MA or MSc.

What to study in a limited time? The subject you or your family have paid to do an advanced qualification in or how to pronounce the word rtęć.

Anyway, good luck to the poster, hopefully he will be able to settle in Poland.

Yup,I know cpl people from Brazil,Mexico,India and Brits who cant get there resident permits for the last 1 1/2 years and when they go to immigration,they are told they have instructions to process Ukrainians first.It was the case with Americans a year back or so but lately they are getting there resident permits in 2/3 months.Some trashy Americans dont even bother and do Visa runs and work under the table.

That depends. If he's got a good job lined up that helps, and of course he mentioned a fiancée which helps.

Hopefully she's more linguistically adept than he is.
Maybe she's even Polish!

As an Indian speaking English, he's probably pretty good with languages. Her nationality doesn't matter. Only love if they're together.

True. Along with a local language, the gentleman must also know of course Hindi, as well as another Western language. Point well taken...as always!

Are you referring here to the illiterate caste aka "The Untouchables"?

I'm not sure where or not there's a Polish language test for visas to settle, for example after marriage or to work. There is for citizenship.

illiterate caste

Many people in the scheduled castes you mention are literate however many languages are spoken in India, from several very different language families. Millions of people speak Tamil, Bengali, etc, entirely unrelated to Hindi.

I don't think so (never heard about it)- I met a couple of immigrants without a trace of Polish language knowledge (apart from 'dobry' which stood for 'dzień dobry' ;) )

Polish language test B 1 level has to be passed for Permanent residence(I dont know incase of marriage) from a Govt recognized institution.For temporary residence there is no need for Polish language test.For citizenship it is a must even in case of marriage.

That's also true, jon.
I believe that a standard examination or language test is required in many European countries before a foreigner can either study or apply for permanent employment.

I received that before that became official (though I did have to write a letter in Polish explaining why I wanted/needed permanent residence).

B1 seems a little low...

Me too,I think in 2010 or 2011 was easy peasy,now people struggle to get it.

though I did have to write a letter in Polish explaining

I did not,they filled my forms and just podpis,podpis and the decesija was in cpl of weeks,even though I didnt care much about it,only way it has helped me is to buy property without taking permission and during covid to travel.In fact most of the time starsz granica on airport starts talking to me in Polish and I have to tell em sorry no Polish and they look at me wide eyed and start checking the passport again lol.

B1 seems a little low...

lol not really,at least for me its hard.Forget that people cant even get dates for the exam and some even travel overseas to take a date for that exam.

In Germany ever since Mommy Merkel began importing all of those Syrians towards the end of her period in office, apparently a German language test was deemed (understandably) mandatory in order for them to be allowed to remain in the country and get them functional in the language.

Poland has relatively limited experience in absorbing the vast waves of migrants, until recently that is, which have long since been arriving in the Federal Republic, starting already in the late '50's with the first Italians, followed by the Spaniards, Greeks, eventually of course, the Turks up through the '70's.

Common Lyzko,you know better there are plenty of Indians living in your building and neighborhood and little India is near you in Jersey City.

Indeed I do, Cargo pants, and most understand only the most basic English. Stray from the assigned script and they're lost! ALL learn English in school and must speak it at home in order to communicate with foreigners, but their first and primary tongue is either Hindi, Gujarati, Panjabi, Urdu or any of the four hundred languages spoken in that country.

I'm excluding Pakistanis here, by the way:-)
